On Wednesday, 19 June, we had four girls represent Aquinas College at the Mount Maunganui RSA BOP Girls’ Chess Tournament, held at Mount Maunganui Primary School. Each of the girls played six games during the day in this tournament which is open to all girls in the Bay of Plenty region. This annual tournament is held to encourage more girls to play the wonderful game of chess. The final results were very pleasing, with three of our four girls gaining placings.
